TORONTO -- Mayor Rob Ford's re-election campaign is ramping up this week and Councillor Doug Ford is promising more Hollywood theatrics.

Doug Ford revealed Monday that Jimmy Kimmel -- the U.S. comedian who interviewed the mayor last week -- will be a guest on an upcoming episode of  the Fords' YouTube show.

"If it was up to (challenger John Tory) and (NDP MP) Olivia Chow, they'd make sure it was winter all the way to October," Doug Ford, the mayor's campaign manager, told QMI Agency.

"When the snow melts -- have you ever seen Braveheart when the guys are coming over the hill? That's going to be Ford Nation coming at these guys. That strength is the ground game."

The Ford camp will be opening an east-end campaign office to rev up Ford Nation on both sides of the city.
